ls -d .* lists only hidden "items" (files & directories). (I think) technically it lists every item beginning with
., which includes the current
. and above
I also know that
ls -A lists "almost all" of the items, listing both hidden and un-hidden items, but excluding
... However, combining these as
ls -dA .* doesn't list "almost all" of my hidden items.
How can I exclude . and .. when listing hidden items?
